Presenter: Susan Zoline, Psy.D.Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Professor of PsychologyThe Illinois School of Professional Psychology ~ Chicago
Program DescriptionThis program will address the interplay of ethics and multi-cultural diversity in clinical supervision. Drawing from the APA Ethics Code (2017), APA Guidelines for Clinical Supervision in Health Service Psychology (2015) and the APA Multicultural Guidelines (2017), the presenter will describe a number of scenarios in which the intersectionality of the cultural identities of the supervisee’s clients, the supervisee and the supervisor may lead to entanglements and/or micro-aggressions, if not properly addressed.
The presenter will address ways in which supervisors can assist supervisees in gaining necessary knowledge, attitudes and skills to work with a culturally diverse clientele, while remaining mindful of ethical responsibilities. Special attention will be paid to mentoring beginning supervisees to address the interplay of ethics and cultural diversity as they are gaining comfort with their own authority in the new role of clinical supervisor.
Learning ObjectivesAfter attending the intermediate-level workshop, participants will be able to:(1) Identify three relevant APA ethical principles or standards associated with optimal clinical supervision.(2) Describe two ways in which the power dynamics of supervisory relationships may be sensitively addressed to promote culturally competent clinical supervision.
